Seafood
Inspired by the wood-fired Robata grills of Japan, Mizu offers a refreshed take on live-fire cooking atop the Hyatt Centric in the heart of Charlotte’s SouthPark neighborhood. Slated to open in August of 2021, the rooftop restaurant by Indigo Road Hospitality Group (IRHG) combines the traditions of ancient Japanese cooking with Southern influences and Asian flavors. The kitchen, helmed by Executive Chef and IRHG veteran Michael Chanthavong and anchored by Mizu’s own Robata grill, features a seafood-focused menu composed of wood-fired, raw, and chilled offerings. The beverage program focuses on bright, easy-drinking libations using Japanese spirits and seasonal ingredients, complementing the cuisine and atmosphere. With a chic, minimalist design with natural elements throughout, the restaurant, named for the Japanese word for water, offers sweeping rooftop views from the patio, as well as sophisticated interiors and comfortable lounge and bar seating.

    First impression, greeted with smile and seated immediately. I made a reservation and noted it was our anniversary...I believe 4 separate staff acknowledged us during our visit. No high pressure from our server who had great recommendations (not the most expensive items). Food was great!! Brussel sprouts and pork buns stole the show. We ended spending the same as a nice entree restaurant with a couple drinks. It's a date night/special occasion place for sure, but well worth it. We will go back, so much more food I'd like to try.

    Mizu is okay - but you should be aware that it’s not a sushi restaurant as much as it’s a Japanese fusion/fish restaurant. No disappointments. The food is well presented, and definitely good. It’s not ground breaking but good. The Gyu buns should probably be a pass, the firecracker shrimp a definite try. Note that there’s a definite strong fishy smell as you walk in which usually sends me walking away, but the dishes tasted fresh and bright despite that.

    For a $20 shareable plate of duck confit fried rice…I didn’t expect a side dish to come out. Honestly, the best thing was the edamame starter..which says a lot.

    It was AMAZING again! We loved that we could order from the Queen’s Fest Week menu AND the regular menu! Drinks were awesome and the food was absolutely delicious- the Gyu Buns are to die for as is the Sea Bass with Bok Choy! Our waitress was excellent! We will be back for another round soon!

    Everything from start to finish was superb. Portions are very small but expected as they are tapas style. However, there were only three shrimp with the grilled shrimp plate and if you had four people, there wouldn’t be enough. Would think four would be included especially at the price point. Enjoyed everything though and will be back to sit at the bar next time!

    Didn’t realize it was restaurant week. 😞 Was not as enjoyable as our first visit a few months ago but suspect this is reason. Drinks are fun and unique. I’m sure we’ll be back in the fall to enjoy the rooftop.

    We went to enjoy restaurant week, and added on a few extra things from the menu. The food was good, with the highlights being the chicken yakitori and the octopus. Overall, the vibes of the place was good! We had a good time and were really pleased with the food.

    The food was wonderfully prepared and the flavors were wonderful. Portion sizes are tapas sized, so on the small side, but when choosing several plates of various selections it was the perfect amount. We had room left to split a dessert and am I glad that we did! We had a wonderful banana chocolate concoction and it was the perfect way to finish the meal. I highly recommend.

    Service was below average (drinks and dishes ordered were not served) and fish was mediocre at best. The sea bass was fishy. Our favorite dishes (pineapple and chicken) were not even seafood. Concerning for a seafood restaurant. Will not return.

    Lovely location and lay out.. And that is the best part of the review. The service and food were almost a total miss. The char-grilled food all tasted burnt. The GM was attentive, which is a skill she will need for this job.
